The new-look Gen3 Ford Mustang will make its public debut at the 2022 Repco Bathurst 1000.
Ford unveiled its new seventh-generation Mustang on Thursday, paving the way for the completion of the Gen3-spec Mustang for its racing debut in 2023.
Renders of the Mustang as a Gen3 Supercar appeared in Ford’s launch, though the reveal at Bathurst will be the first version of the new Mustang to appear at a race track.
The new Mustang will join the Chevrolet Camaro on track on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the event, following on from the public reveal of the Gen3 prototypes at Bathurst in 2021.
Dick Johnson Racing is the homologation team for Ford, carrying out the initial prototype testing with the S550 body shape.
“Great news for us last night, and a great future for Mustang racing,” said Mark Rushbrook, Global Director of Ford Motorsport.
“DJR is the homologation team, they’ve been very close with the aero development with the body part design.
“The transformation of the car is well underway and on schedule for Bathurst.
“With VCAT still pending, it’s as final as it can be at this point subject to any modifications.”
